The two competitors have fought in several high-stakes contests, including an intense Last Woman Standing Match on Monday Night Raw. On that occasion, The Queen of Harts won by powerbombing her foe off the side of the stage and through a table.
Earlier this year she made her position clear about wanting to create history and blaze a trail for others to follow.
"For me, I just think it would be so historical for women to make those positive steps over there," she said in an interview with ESPN 1530's No Holds Barred."
"I think it'd be a huge step for WWE and a huge step for that country. It's something I want to be a part of."
Crown Jewel will also feature Tyson Fury's maiden contest as a WWE competitor when he faces Braun Strowman.
When Fury made his Crown Jewel match with Strowman official, the British boxer did so with a promise that he fully intends to knock out the Monster Among Men when the two giants meet.
Triple H has since said Fury's combination of showmanship and athleticism make him the 'perfect fit' for WWE.
